What is DefenDoor?

DefenDoor is the universal home-security system that connects to your smartphone to make protecting your home or office easier than ever. Imagine having the convenience of a butler, organization of a secretary, and protection of a security guard, rolled into one easy-to-install monitoring system. 

It consists of one DefenDoor that acts as a camera, doorbell, and alarm system. It can be used individually, inside or outside, or with Glate’s vibration and motion sensors. Each DefenDoor device sends alerts to your smartphone within seconds of recognition, whether that be photos, voice messages, or live video feed.

Here’s how DefenDoor works:

DefenDoor easily attaches to any surface and offers around-the-clock surveillance as well as alerts and chimes when suspicious activity occurs. It’s a totally wireless, waterproof monitoring solution that can be used inside and outside.

When a visitor approaches the DefenDoor unit, the device snaps a picture of the scene and sends this snapshot straight to the homeowner’s smartphone. You can then decide whether to accept a one-way video chat with the visitor, ignore the alert, or send the visitor a pre-recorded message letting them know you’re unavailable to meet with them.

One DefenDoor camera will sync up with up to 5 sensors, which can be a mix of vibration and motion sensors, if placed within 30 feet of each other.

The motion sensor allows the camera to turn itself on and off at appropriate times. When the motion sensor detects movement, it will activate the camera’s functions immediately, and also alert your phone.

The vibration sensor can be placed on windows, doors, and objects in or around the home. These sensors alert the homeowner via smartphone if they are being moved or tampered with.

Software Development

We have finished all firmware in our current RTOS platform, providing DefenDoor with functionality such as instant-on/fast boot, echo cancellation, 2 way audio, video streaming, and video storage. DefenDoor is equipped with both a WiFi and a Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) Driver. APP UI and flow process is defined and we are progressing. Upon the success of our Kickstarter campaign, we will integrate DefenDoor with Cloud and Beacon features.

The sensors can be linked to DefenDoor, however the App is not ready to demo due to Cloud involvement. DefenDoor's working prototype is evolving, but it is not in its final form. We need your support in these final steps!

Why did we choose Kickstarter?

We chose to do a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter because this is the most effective way to not only fund our product, but create a community of DefenDoor backers and future users. The $100,000 will help perfect the DefenDoor and sensor technology, as well as Cloud compatibility, and fund the manufacturing of each device.

About Us

Dedicated to making homes and families safer, Glate is focused on the development of “smart” home devices.  Glate has a varied background in home security technology and hardware.  DefenDoor, the company’s newly launched product, is an affordable, easy-to-install home security system that helps families monitor visitors and outside activity via their smartphone. 

Risks and challenges

We’ve done our best to keep the risks and challenges minimal for this Kickstarter project. We have made every effort to keep this project simple. This project will be difficult, but we have done our homework and we know this project can be completed in a timely manner. The longest lead time process will likely be the software and Cloud development. If there are delays, this is where they most likely will occur. However, we have spend most of our efforts and resources on it, and expect to have these issues resolved well before delivering product. Backer communication will be a top priority and we will be posting updates as we progress, that way you are always apart of the process!
